For over twenty-five years the Festival of Lights in Summerland has become synonymous with the start of the holiday season. On the last Friday in November thousands flock to the downtown to celebrate the start of Christmas in Summerland. Whether coming to meet Santa, meet up with friends and family, or start the Christmas shopping the evening is full.
Experience thrilling fun from bouncy castles to stilt walkers performing throughout the downtown. Be amazed as artists craft intricate sculptures of ice in just a few hours. Sing along and dance in the snow as performers from children’s choirs to top performing artists take the stage to shine as part of the Summerland Light Up event. Warm up with a hot chocolate, pick your favourite comfort food, or try delicious delicacies prepared by master bakers and chefs as you wander the streets.
There’s a lot to enjoy before you join the countdown to light-up a sea of twinkling lights. The return to the festivities until the excitement builds as you soak up the atmosphere with the other revelers while you wait in anticipation for the fireworks to light up the sky.
